What is Digital Identity? Digital Identity encompasses a variety of sectors from verification as a service (VaaS) to identity and access management (IAM), consumer identity and access management (CIAM), cloud software as a service (SaaS) identity, transaction authentication, and the newest entrant – self-sovereign identity. Fields related to Identity include Cyber Security, Fraud, Multi-Factor Authentication, and much more. Join us if you have experience in any of these fields or simply want to learn more; all experience levels and industries are welcome! 

What is Women in Identity? Women in Identity is an open forum for women in the identity field to share experiences, collaborate, and gain support. Our mission is to inspire, elevate, and support a more diverse workforce in the digital identity industry. It is our hope that this organization will create a space for mentorship, idea sharing, and support. We aspire to foster confidence in our members to share their own expertise through avenues such as speaking at conferences, sitting on panels, and planning other meet-ups. Our goal is to create visibility for women in the identity field and empower a whole community of women to support one another.
